The village offices remain closed to the public. Essential work continues in the highway, water and wastewater departments. We are also continuing with our high water preparations, REDI projects and other essential tasks to keep the village moving forward. The building department is open and permits and inspections are still required.
Water and sewer bills are in the mail. There are 3 ways to pay them: mail them, use the drop box in the village hall parking lot or electronically at – https://soduspoint.info/
Please do not bring water bill payments into the village hall, even if someone is here.
We WILL pick up brush next Monday April 6th. After this pick up brush collection will be SUSPENDED until further notice. The brush dump site, behind the old water plant on Featherly Drive is open and you can take your brush there. Please do not put it roadside beyond April 6th.
Please email your concerns or issues and we will do our best to address them promptly. Our emails are:
Dave McDowell dmcdowell@

We also encourage residents to order take out from our local restaurants. We all need to look in on our neighbors and help when we can. If you are aware of unmet needs, please make us aware and we will try to connect the right resources. We will get through this together.
Water levels today are 246.78, up 3.25 inches in the month. Outflows are 8,900 cm/s, down from 10,200 on Friday. The March forecast from USACE indicates there is a 50% chance we will be 247.4 at the peak, we should see the April report next week sometime. Shipping formally starts on Wednesday and that will likely have some impact on the outflows. Both the IJC and River Board have indicated they will set outflows above the safe shipping limit by at least 200 cm/s and possibly as much as 500 cm/s. We’ll see what actually happens.
Our sandbagging plan will be finalized this week. That will allow us to seek the balance of NYS resources needed to implement the plan.
While you have some time, please remember to complete the Census 2020. It only takes a few minutes and it is very important, especially here in upstate NY.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
